Directions:
Butter an 8-in. square baking pan butter. In a large heavy saucepan, combine water, corn syrup and sugar. Bring to a boil over medium heat, stirring occasionally. Cover and cook for 3 minutes to dissolve any sugar crystals. Uncover; cook over medium-high heat, without stirring, until a candy thermometer reads 300 (hard-crack stage). Remove from the heat; stir in extract and food coloring (keep face away from mixture as order is very strong). Pour into prepared pan. Using a sharp knife, score into 3/4-in. squares. Cool.
